Build a React App

React app builder is the fastest way to bring your app design to life without weeks of coding. Get everything right here in your app from design to code, to app sync on GitHub or GitLab, along with multiple app features like API integration, in-app permissions, social authentication, and backend services integration like Firebase and Supabase.


note

DhiWise converts your design to code by auto-identifying all your screen UI, components, and generates complete code for the same. Easily setup actions on your components like Navigation, API integration, Social authentication, and many more to easily generate your complete app in no time!

Project set up

Follow the below steps to create a React application:

  • Create an application: Create a new application with your design, or create one from the vast collection of templates or screen library.
  • Add APIs and Environment variables: Add APIs manually or upload a Postman collection and start integrating API into your app.
  • Change Components: Change or modify the components easily along with their properties right here, rather than moving back to Figma.
  • Build App: Build your app anytime and get your app source code easily.
